ITS Definition


According to the dictionary, the definition of interactivity is: “the extent to which something is interactive; the extent to which acomputer program and human being may have a dialog”. 

The article “Interactive Media – What’s that? Who’s involved” says that  “Interactive media is the integration of digital media including combinations of electronic text, graphics, moving images, and sound, into a structured digital computerised environment that allows people to interact with the data for appropriate purposes. The digital environment can include the Internet, telecoms and interactive digital television”.

With this information, I came up with my own definition of Interactive Technology and Systems, which is: a system (digital, electronic, or not) which, in an innovative way, interacts with the user, giving a completely unique and immersive experience.

In Pixar movies, the producers have the talent of make people feel empathy by objects and animals, in Interactive Technologies and Systems, we have to do something similar, we have to make the user feel immersed in another universe, which interactis with him/her.
